My son’s school creates a beautiful Day of the Dead alter, so the children can bring photos of their loved ones and celebrate life. My son will be bringing a photo of my childhood pet and best friend, OJ. OJ was a funny, whimsical orange cat who loved to play fetch and hide and seek. He was my first pet, and he immediately became a loving, joyful presence in our family. He lives on through the stories that I tell my son at bedtime and dinner. My son loves these stories and through them a relationship has formed. He will be bringing a photo of my beloved pet for Dia De Los Metros and it has been nice thinking about him again seeing his cute little face.
Enjoy this little coloring cube and picture frame. You can stack them to make a small alter of your own.
